Game Theory and Political Theory
GOVT 335
Spring 2011 not offered

Over the last two decades, game theory has become an increasingly important, as well as a controversial, methodological tool for framing and understanding many problems in political science. It is indispensable for the rigorous understanding of a number of very general problems of strategic interaction that span the entire field of political science. Examples of such problems are collective action, commitment problems, moral hazard, signaling, etc. The principal aim of the course is to introduce the students to the formal tools and concepts that underlie the analysis of these problems in political science. The study of the formal concepts will be combined with applications.
